The Carter Family

Our heartfelt condolences to the Harrell family! Please be reminded of Jesus' model prayer at Matthew 6:9-10. Our loving heavenly Father has promised that eternal life on earth will not be plagued by the suffering we see today. He is aware of the pain we experience because of sickness and death, and he has purposed to undo all our woes by means of his heavenly Kingdom. What an assured bright future for Ms. Ester and other faithful servants. As we gather together to commemorate Jesus' death of Friday, April 19, we can gain comfort as we reflect upon the great sacrifice Jesus made in forgiveness of sins giving Ms. Ester the opportunity to live forever in perfect health. (John 3:16; Luke 22:19)

Community Memorial Baptist Church, Yonkers, NY

Dear Family, Sincere condolences and heartfelt prayers to all of you as we mourn with you the passing of your and our beloved, Ester Harrell. Such a loss for the Community Memorial Baptist Church Family of Yonkers, NY. Our hearts are heavy that the "physical" presence of one who has been such an important part of our fellowship for decades is now gone from among us. Her voice as a member of the Chancel and Mass Choirs still echos in our memories. Her wonderful missionary work and her proud lively step as she so humbly served as a doorkeeper in the House of the Lord still brings joy to our hearts and smiles to our faces. She will forever be with us in prayer and in spirit. Such a lively, lovely and joyful person she was - always full of laughter to brighten any day. We remember each of you her beloved children and grandchildren family whom she tried so faithfully to plant and nurture in the Lord's service. Be uplifted in the certain knowledge that she now rests in the comforting bosom of the loving Savior to whom she dedicated her life. Weeping may endure for the night but joy cometh in the morning. May God bless and keep each of you always! The Community Memorial Baptist Church, 132 Waverly Street, Yonkers, NY10701

To the Harrell/Knight family.
Ester Lee was my first cousin. It's been many years since we've seen each other. My condolences to all of you. She was one of champions in Alabama, I loved her. Willie James and I were good friends as well. I kept meaning to get to Fla to see her since I found out that she'd moved from NY to Fla.
Another flame has gone out, and the way now, made a little less light.
Rest in peace My Cousin; and may the Grace of God be with all of you who will miss her presence. Blessings to you!
